cute vs. hot

For the quiz question: "Mira a ese chico, ¡qué bueno está!

having both 

" Look at that guy! He is hot!"

and

" Look at that guy! He is cute!"

as possible answers is confusing. In American English at least, there can be a great deal of overlap between hot and cute in terms of indicating sexual attractiveness. (Cute can also be applied to, say, a puppy whereas it's unlikely you would say a puppy was hot unless you meant it quite literally. It's debatable whether a cute puppy could grow into a hot dog.)
